Re: should you take accutane if your on an anti-depressant

It really depends on you. How long have you been on the anti-depressants and how depressed are you? The only thing you would have to check is to see if you could take them both at the same time. As for Accutane causing depression, itís hit or miss. Some people say it does and others (most) say it has no effect. If the acne is a large reason why you are depressed, it might be something you should do.

i just dont like the idea of using my body as a chemical reaction vessell. those 2 medications will meet somehwere in the body and what they do nobody knows i swear. if minocin doesnt work yes im gonna try accutane. if always just thought accutane was for severe cystic acne. ive never had a cyst in my life.
